How To Prevent Sports
& Exercise Injuries
Millions of people experience a sports or exercise injury each year. Shin splints, pulled muscles, aching kneecaps, and strained hamstring muscles are common when you begin a new exercise program or put too much stress on your body.

Here are tips to avoid getting hurt when exercising or playing sports:
  • Have A Fitness Test: A visit to your doctor is important if you are starting a new exercise program. Your doctor may find an undiagnosed heart condition or other disease that will require workout modifications.

  • Know Your Body: It sounds basic, but many fail to make adjustments to account for known body weaknesses. For example, if you have knee problems you may want to try a stationary bike instead of a treadmill.

  • Wear Proper Attire: Wear proper shoes that fit and grip the ground to avoid slipping or tripping. Workout clothes that keep you warm but not hot are best to avoid getting overheated and passing out.

  • Act Your Age: When you get excited about a new workout or sport, you can do too much, too quickly and push yourself too long. Work with a trainer, and make sure you’re using the correct technique.

  • Feed Your Muscles And Hydrate Your Body: A high protein meal one hour before your workout will give you the fuel you need to keep going. Thirty minutes before you exercise, drink about 16 ounces of water. Drink more water during your workout to replace the fluids you’re losing.

  • Know The Injury Warning Signs: If you have any of the following for more than 48 hours, see a physician: joint pain (including swelling, redness and heat), reduced range of motion, or numbness, and tingling.

What You Should Know
About Home Health Tests
At-home health screening tests are becoming increasingly popular, because they are quick, confidential and can help you detect or monitor specific conditions. The most common tests are:
  • Diabetes Screening: Measures A1c levels and average blood glucose (sugar) levels.

  • Home Pregnancy: Gives women an early confirmation of pregnancy.

  • HIV: Allows you to determine if you have the antibodies to HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus, Type 1) in your blood.

  • Thyroid hormone levels: Measures TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormones) in the blood to indicate an underactive or overactive thyroid.

  • Paternity: Uses DNA from the inside of your cheek. Accuracy is claimed to be greater than 99 percent to prove or disprove paternity.

  • Cholesterol: Evaluates total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein (HDL).

  • Drug Use: Uses a urine, saliva, or hair sample to test for marijuana, cocaine amphetamines, and opiates.
What You Should Know To Buy And Use At-Home Tests:
  • Follow test instructions carefully; not doing so can affect results.

  • Buy a test that is FDA approved. To see if the test is approved, go to, enter “search IVD” in the box at the top right, click the search button, then choose “OTC - Over The Counter” database.

  • Pharmacies sell FDA-approved tests. Talk to the pharmacist when you buy one if you have any questions about how to properly use the test.

  • Be cautious of buying the tests online. While there are some reputable sellers, there are many that are not. Ask the seller if the product is FDA-approved (it may not be if it’s made outside the U.S.).

  • You may still need to see your doctor to discuss questions about a test or a test result.

Fun Facts and Laughs
Save Money With These Quick Appliance Fixes . . .

Appliance repair experts say that up to 25 percent of repair calls have simple solutions. Try these fixes before calling the appliance repair service.

Refrigerator is not cold. If you can’t get the refrigerator cold enough by lowering the setting, try looking under it. You probably have dirty condenser coils. Unplug the fridge, remove the grill and vacuum the coils to remove dirt and dust.

Dishwasher is not running. The float switch inside the dishwasher tells it when enough water has entered and when to begin washing. See if the switch is jammed in the up position from objects like forks.

Weak vacuum suction. If cleaning the filters and bags doesn’t help, check the hose for an obstruction. Drop a coin in one end and if it doesn’t come out, try to dislodge the debris with a broomstick.

Links To Have More Fun During Leisure Time . . .

Music: You can find links to more than 2,500 radio stations.

Horseback riding: Find guest ranches, riding clinics and even cattle drives.

Beverage recipes: Even non-alcoholic ones like chocolate drinks, fruit punches, lemonades and more.

Travel: Make planning trips with friends and family fun and easy using to build an itinerary and track expenses.

Have A Laugh — “Three Companies Are After Me” . . .

Bob walks into his boss’s office. “Sir, I’ll be straight with you, I know the economy isn’t great, but I have over three companies after me, and I would like to respectfully ask for a raise.”

After a few minutes of haggling the boss finally agrees to a 5 percent raise, and Bob happily gets up to leave. “By the way,” asks the boss as he is getting up, “Which three companies are after you?” Bob responds, “The electric company, the water company, and the phone company.”

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  What do buyers really want when looking for a house?

A.  Here are ways to tap into what every buyer wants:
  • Every buyer wants a place to call “home”. The decision to buy is emotional, not 100% logical. Buyers look at a “house,” but they’re really evaluating it for its potential to become their home. Properly staging your house allows buyers to have an emotional experience – seeing their family living there.

  • Every buyer wants a bargain. Subtly influence buyers by using such phrases as “priced to sell” or “a unique bargain at this price.”

  • Every buyer wants to claim special discounts. You can motivate a sale by creating a sense of urgency. Consider using special terms that expire on a fixed date.
